The Challenger Cheer Squad is a team of special needs children, ages 5-16 with disabilities.  The program provides children  who have cognitive limitations, health impairments, learning and social/emotional disabilities an opportunity to be a part of a local cheerleading program they otherwise would not be able to participate in.  This program strives to incorporate physical activity and socialization in an encouraging atmosphere which is fun for children with special needs.  In season the team participate in weekly practices and cheers at D-R Falcons football games.  The children have had opportunity to participate in local and state competitions as an exhibition team.  The team is currently the only Pop Warner Challenger Cheerleading Squad in all of the 6 New England states.
